This year, with the onset of every new project, I'm asking myself if I really need to buy new (insert fabric, yarn, gadget, here)?
Don't I have something that will work?
Maybe not as exciting as running out buying new, but I'm thinking it might be more satisfying to make what I have work. I am really going to try to stay firm to this line of thinking with every new project.
As I continue to spruce up my studio space a little, I took a Christmas gift card to Anthropologie last week and, low and behold, a Molly Hatch "Make Do" vase that says it all. I brought it home, and made a bouquet of recycled flowers to put in it (a project in my book).
Just to remind me.
I will be letting you know how it goes.
